Apex Legends Season 13 Drops a Giant Crab at Storm Point

When you first land at Storm Point in Apex Legends Season 13, you’ll notice a few changes right away. From above, the most obvious would be the giant dead sea monster lying on the beach. While this is a significant new interest at Storm Point, there are other changes – including some dangerous old arsenals that have appeared around the battle royale game’s tropical island.

EA has revealed that the dead sea monster you found on the beach started with a simple idea. “We kind of asked the question, what would it be like if we could fight in and around a trapped sea monster?” Jeff Shaw, Lead Level Designer at Apex Legends developer Respawn explains. “We thought that Storm Point fits so well for what it is as a map, which of course is this wild tropical paradise inhabited by monsters.”

In the Apex Legends story, this sea monster appeared near Storm Point, and the Legends had to band together to take it down. The seismic activity caused by this fight reactivated many of the forgotten IMC armory that would appear around Storm Point at the start of Season 13.

“These arsenals are relics left over from Frontier Warfare,” says senior game designer Samantha Kalman. “They were built for these automated conflict support structures that are loaded with valuable cargo, and they have onboard security.”

In other words, there are rewards for being in, but it’s risky to enter. “Players can enter and activate them, and it will start a 60-second timed combat encounter fighting waves of Specters,” Kalman explains. “The great thing about these arsenals is that when you’re inside this minute-long battle you’re protected from having a third party.”

The Season 13 release date is just approaching, and we’ve already gotten some advance details on the new legend, Newcastle, who will be joining the ranks this season.
